Our RB Digital Resources are growing! Now not only do we have eBooks, audio books, magazines and independent films, but Acorn TV has now been added to the collection. When you sign in to Acorn TV through the library, you get free access for one week. If you have already created an account for one of the other RB digital services, you will need to use the same username and password that your created then.

We have tax forms!
Come down to Mary H. Weir Public Library to pick up your tax forms and get a head start on tax season!
While you're there, make sure to ask about MyFreeTaxes.com, a program the library offers that allows families with incomes up to $66,000 to use free H&R Block software on the internet to prepare and file their own state and federal tax returns for free.
This is offered through a collaboration of the Mary H Weir Library, the West Virginia Alliance For Sustainable Families, Weirton United Way, and H&R Block (Photo credit D. Dorsch)

If your local nonprofit organization has an event or service that you would like to publicize, the library has a new way to do that. We have recently installed monitors in the library lobby. If you would like to have an event publicized, email your information or flyer to email@example.com. The information is easier to read if it is set up horizontally or landscape and as a picture file or .jpg. PowerPoint slides can also be inserted directly into the app. Adobe files cannot be inserted into the software directly, and we currently do not have the software to transfer them into other formats. Including a logo for your nonprofit is also helpful as we have been trying to include the logos in the corner to make it easier to identify the organization holding the event. We hope to use these for many purposes including public awareness of events and services, art and history displays, televised news, and even teleconferencing in the future.
